Cloud computing offers many advantages for healthcare organizations, but there are some drawbacks to the technology as well. Healthcare IT News recently asked its readers if their organizations plan on implementing cloud computing. A large majority has cloud on their radar.

 

Forty-eight percent said they plan on making cloud computing part of their organization’s health IT infrastructure, while 33 percent are already using cloud.

 

Cloud computing has quickly made inroads in the health IT space. It is an effective data storage method and helps facilitate exchange between providers.

 

Only 19 percent of respondents indicated they are not going for the cloud. Security issues surrounding cloud computing might be one reason why some providers are not adopting the technology.
